Movie Reviews

Nothing I haven't seen better countless times before
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The sole reason I watched that movie was that I usually like Daniel Baldwin's acting regardless of the quality of the film he's in. Afterwards I felt severely let down.The plot is a sorry mix of what made up a couple of first-rate and lesser action movie these past years: a disappointed special agent turns, steals an ultra-secret army device which disintegrates people but not buildings and takes a city hostage. Still do-goody ex-partner tries to get device back and kill baddie with a James-Bond-like license issued by more-secret-than-secret inner government circles. Can it get more cliched? No. And the oneliners, the distractors (must all would-be wives be silly non-supportive chicks who make you wonder why a 'super-hero' even is interested enough for marriage?) and the other characters are even more cliched.This movie is a lot like zapping wildly through a couple of channels all showing direct-to-video action flicks. You know every action and reaction, the special FX are from the can or look like US army ads, the plot has twists which are telegraphed a mile ahead and the absolutely ridiculous car chase at the end is the lowest common denominator of them all.I might have excused all this if I'd liked the acting, if there had been 'some' spark, some thing genuine and distinct in that movie. The impression however was of actors just moving through the set for the money, uncaring, not directed -- animated GI Joe and Co. show more acting ability. The whole feel is tired, pre-fab, uncaring. Not recommended."

"The ubiquitous director Jim Wynorski is back with another prefab, lackadaisical entry. Daniel Baldwin stars as a crack special operative called upon to ring in a renegade agent played listlessly by Richard Tyson. Tyson is in possession of Pandora, some kind of weapon of mass destruction which can be used in restricted areas, kill the people but leave everything else intact. It never says exactly how it kills anyone, but the writers must have thought that unimportant. At any rate, nothing surprising happens, and the supporting players, including Steve Franken, Tony Todd and even Erika Eleniak are wasted in poorly written roles. The climax is pretty lame considering Baldwin's character was never told how the Pandora device works but he uses it like it was an old friend. Tired, been there done that before movie."
